Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and Imperial College London will successfully conclude their collaboration agreement to establish the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine) as planned in 2028.
Students who enrol this year or in 2023 and complete their Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree (MBBS) by 2028 will receive the joint degree. Those who enrol in 2024 or later will receive an NTU degree.
The two universities are exploring new areas of collaboration in postgraduate education and research in areas such as healthcare devices and systems, public health, sustainability, and climate change, drawing on both NTU Singapore’s and Imperial’s strengths in engineering.
In 2021, as a result of this collaboration, LKCMedicine received the ASPIRE award for excellence in curriculum development, the first medical school in Singapore and the fourth in Asia to win this accolade. The ASPIRE Award, developed by a group of leading international authorities in medical education and educational bodies, led by the UK-based Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE), is the only global accolade of its kind to recognise excellence in medical education.
